Environment Canada has ended its Special Weather Statement, however, that does not remove the possibility of stormy conditions Thursday evening.
According to Environment Canada, Steinbach and area can expect between two and four centimetres of snow Thursday evening. There is also a risk of freezing drizzle.
Winds will be from the northwest at 40 kilometres per hour (km/h), gusting to 60 km/h, which will blow that snow around. For Thursday night, the temperature is expected to drop to -10 degrees, which would be the coldest night since January 27th.
On Friday, Environment Canada is calling for periods of light snow. It will still be breezy, but not as windy as Thursday night with winds at 30 to 50 km/h. Friday's high is -7 degrees.
Even though it could be windy for the next 24 hours, Meteorologist Natalie Hasell reminds us that with all of the melting that has happened in recent weeks, there is very little snow on the fields and ditches. That means there is less existing snow to blow around.
In the wake of this Colorado Low will definitely be a cooling trend. By the middle of next week, daytime highs are expected to only be in the -10 degree range. Friday's high of -7 degrees should end the streak of 12 straight days with temperatures above the freezing mark for Steinbach.
Meanwhile, in your Space Age Kal Tire Road Report, as of Thursday at 4 pm, the province is reporting that many highways in the southeast are partly ice covered, with either slush or blowing/ drifting snow. Visibility is still good.
